University of Guyana Flags Unofficial Social Media Accounts
(UG-DECC/Georgetown/Guyana/March 26/ University of Guyana Flags Unofficial Social Media Accounts). The University of Guyana wishes to bring to the public’s attention that several Twitter and Facebook accounts including the name University of Guyana, including alumni and friends of the University of Guyana are not official University of Guyana accounts. These accounts are not operated by the University administration and do not therefore broadcast the views of the University. The University’s official Institutional Twitter account is called University of Guyana-Official and has not been active since 2019 due to the ongoing revamping of the University’s communications apparatus.
This is different from University of Guyana @ugstudents which seems to be run by students or former students.
The University continues to work on making the differentiation of its institutional official channels even more distinct moving forward. It is to be noted that UG has not been using social media for official communication, but has used its official SRMS system and website to post all important information: www.uog.edu.gy . The Act establishing the University of Guyana flowing from the Constitution of Guyana mandates an apolitical non-discriminatory stance which the institution strives to honor in all its activities.
